A conversation over at Web Fiction Guide got me thinking. An average chapter here is right around 2000 words, sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less, but usually right between 1700-2200 words. Some people over there think that's too long for a serial, that people don't want to spend 10 minutes reading a chapter. I find that odd, myself, but then, I'm a lot older than most of you guys and probably have different reading habits.
So I'm polling: Short chapters and more updates, longer chapters and fewer updates, or things the way they are? And by "short," I'm talking about 500-700 words, essentially a brief scene. It'd essentially mean that the average installment here would be split up over three or so update days rather than one day, so I could update five times a week--but you'd be getting the same amount of story, and it'd feel disjointed to me. At this point, I'm really just more curious about what people like, perhaps for the next serial ("50" or "Laney"), because I don't see the History changing.
